I am in the process of refinishing all the hardwood floors in my 1930's home. The old old finish was easy to remove with Zinsser Strip Fast Furniture Refinisher and we didn't restain and it looks beautiful. We put on several coats of a protectant finish that has a little bit of gloss to it. But the previous owner had refinished one room and it has a matte polyurethane finish on. This remover doesn't seem to budge this finish & I'm at a loss.

When purchasing a toilet or water closet the question that is foremost on your mind is "will it flush the wastes away the first time or will I have to learn how to use the dreaded plunger?" For you ladies with a guy handy, the latter amounts to a very loud "honey, the toilet is clogged again!".
Home Depot and Lowes do a great job in pulling together thousands of items, supplies and tools needed to do home improvement projects. Where they fall down is that they don't teach people how to do things. This is especially bad news right now since most people have scaled back their large purchases and are focusing on simple repairs.

Hopefully these tips will help you get th best out of your renovation project.
Condominiums and apartments like other large buildings use 40 percent of energy in the U.S. If you live in a condo or apartment and want to reduce energy consumption, save money and perhaps use more renewable energy like solar, you'll have to think collectively. That means that your condo association, home owners association or landlord has to take action on the residents behalf. This article presents two distinct approaches of doing that by using Demand Side Management and installing solar photovoltaic or solar thermal for your building.
We use quite a bit of hot water mostly for showers and baths, and to wash our dishes and clothes. Unfortunately, 80-90 percent of the energy used to heat that water goes right down the drain. Now for less than $500-$700 plus installation costs, owners of single family and multifamily homes can install a drain heat recovery system to recover that heat. That means longer hot showers, saving electricity or natural gas and of course money. The payback time is about 2-3 years.
